Lots of special designs come from the Peugeot Design Lab. The Onyx Sofa happens to be another special idea. This is a 3 meter long seat made of carbon fiber and Volvic volcanic lava stone. Here is what Gilles Vidal, PEUGEOT Styling Director has to say about it:
At Milan, with the ONYX sofa, we are drawing a thread between the ONYX concept car, an alliance of efficiency and the use of audacious and natural materials, and the ONYX sofa. By means of a sharp straight cut, this contrast is powerful, voluntary and assumed in the way we look at the materials and how they are used: the hi-tech carbon fibre with its very structured and technical texture, its shapes precisely adjusted to the volcanic stone with its texture & fault lines, perfectly adjusted in its dimensions and proportions
It definitely looks like a conversation starter. Too bad I don’t have the space or money to get something like this.
